European Accessibility Resource Centre AccessibleEU (Room C118)
In this workshop, the basics of digital accessibility will be presented using the EU standard EN 301 549 entitled “Accessibility requirements for ICT products and services”. It defines accessibility requirements for information and communication technology in the public sector and is considered a binding standard.
Their criteria specify the importance of perceptibility, usability, comprehensibility and robustness according to EU Directive 2016/2102 “on barrier-free access to websites and mobile applications of public bodies”.
With the implementation decision (EU) 2021/1339 of August 12, 2021, EN 301 549 was published in version 3.2.1 in the European Official Journal. Since then, this new version has been decisive for the implementation of digital accessibility for public bodies of the federal government. Then the connection between EN 301 549 and BITV 2.0 will be explained. BITV is the implementation of EN 301 549 valid in Germany. In addition, the W3C/WAI guidelines WCAG (Web Accessibility Guidelines) are presented and test methods for their fulfilment are trained.
